GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) — A pasta benefit was held in Girard to help out Team Alex.

People gathered at the Girard IFH for the dinner. The proceeds of the event are going to Team Alex because of their generosity to the IFH.

A few months ago, Team Alex received a $5,000r donation by Rick Glass, who got the money from the IFH for moving from the blast zone during the Girard fireworks. However, Team Alex gave the money back to the IFH.

“This is probably the greatest thing we have ever done for an individual,” said Ray Raggozine Jr. of the Girard IFH.

“It is nice to be able to see a young person that has the generosity to give back to the community and we want to make sure she gets rewarded for her efforts,” added Myron Esposito, also of the Girard IFH.

The IFH said they were hoping to have over 1,000 people.
